Farmington has always enjoyed a stable economic environment. The city’s location is ideal with downtown St. Louis reachable in just over a one-hour drive. Accessible transportation also plays a role in Farmington’s economic success with nearby major highways, along with the Farmington Regional Airport and the use of the Union Pacific Railroad. Local business, comprised of everything from independently – owned shops and major retailers and service providers – including Wal-Mart, Lowe’s, JC Penney, Sears, Accent Marketing, and Centene Corporation – to progressive manufacturers – such as U.S. Tool Grinding and SRG Global – continues to diversify, making Farmington an appealing site for relocation or expansion.

The Farmington Industrial Development Authority (IDA) is the lead agency in industrial recruitment and retention. The IDA was first established in 1981 and has been a cooperative partner with many of the industries currently located in the community. The IDA Board of Directors is comprised of community leaders from manufacturing, retail, medical services and finance sectors, and is anxious to assist your company in its start-up, relocation, or expansion.

“Farmington offers great opportunities for industrial growth and expansion. The high quality workforce, dependable work ethics, access to major transportation routes, and amenities offered by the community will all help to ensure your success.”

Harry “Chip” Peterson, IDA President
